Call for Catering Volunteers

Do you enjoy meeting new people, dabbling in the kitchen and having fun? If you do we would love to have you on our volunteer catering team. Our caterers (both males and female) are a dedicated, delightful and welcoming bunch who whip-up fabulous food for Foundation & Friends events. Our caterers work in pairs or groups for larger events such as opening exhibition launches. Most prepare their dishes at home and then bring it into the Cottage for reheating and plating-up. If you are prepping food for us we will reimburse you for ingredients.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in please call Linda Cholson, Office Coordinator, on 02 9231 8182 or send her an email at with your name and contact number – she’ll be in touch! Full training and support will be provided.

We look forward to you welcoming you to the team!
